    Getty Indianapolis Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday criticized himself over some of his late-game decisions against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 12. NFL coaches and players receive a 10-minute cooling off period before speaking to the media after games. This allows coaches to gather their thoughts and hopefully provide more insightful answers to the public. But often times, 10 minutes isn’t enough time to reflect on the events of an entire 60-minute football game. That appeared to be the case for Indianapolis Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday in Week 12. During his postgame press conference after a 24-17 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football, Saturday explained why he was so conservative in his usage of the team’s timeouts at the end of the fourth quarter. Rather than his clock management, he blamed Indianapolis’ failure to score on its final drive on executive. Saturday, though, sang a little bit different tune when talking to the media again on November 29 — a little more than 12 hours after the loss. “I wish I had...
    Getty There was quite a reaction to how Indianapolis Colts interim head coach Jeff Saturday used his timeouts at the end of a loss on Monday Night Football. Jeff Saturday has been rather impressive to begin his tenure as interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. But he may have had his welcome to the NFL moment at the end of Monday Night Football in Week 12. Colts quarterback Matt Ryan scrambled for 14 yards to the Pittsburgh Steelers 26-yard line on second-and-17. When Ryan got up to hand the ball to the official, there was about 50 seconds remaining on the clock. Surprisingly, the Colts didn’t call a timeout despite having three to use. Instead, Indianapolis seemed to rush a running play to Jonathan Taylor, who gained no yards on third-and-3. Finally, the Colts called a timeout before fourth down, but the play was an incomplete pass down the sidelines. The game was over, and Indianapolis ended the second half with two timeouts remaining. After the game, Saturday received criticism on Twitter for failing to use his...
    The Indianapolis Colts lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-17 on Monday Night Football, and interim head coach Jeff Saturday’s confusing clock management skills were in the spotlight. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Indianapolis Colts were both coming off of Week 11 losses to the Cincinnati Bengals and Philadelphia Eagles respectively. Both faced off on the Week 12 edition of Monday Night Football in what may have not been the most enticing game on paper. But it definitely over-delivered. Despite blowing a 16-3 lead in the second half, the Steelers were able to pick up the 24-17 victory over the Colts on Monday. Benny Snell’s two-yard touchdown run by running back Benny Snell in the fourth quarter and a successful two-point conversion pass from quarterback Kenny Pickett to wide receiver George Pickens proved to be the difference.

    After the Week 1 blunder on Monday Night football for Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett the team has hired some help with clock management. After the Week 1 loss to the Seattle Seahawks that saw a really questionable clock management decision Denver Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett admitted he made the wrong call. In the late stages of that game, Hackett let the play clock nearly expire with under a minute to go the team finally called a timeout. After that, they attempted a 64-yard field goal and lost the game after the kick was no good. This is not the only example of Hackett mishandling in-game duties and the clock that has left fans scratching their heads. But after two weeks Hackett and the team are doing the right thing and bringing in a veteran coach to assist and hopefully fix those issues as they’ve reportedly brought in Jerry Rosburg to “assist with game management”. After saying he wanted “more efficient decisions” w/gameday operation, Nathaniel Hackett is backing words with action. Per source, Hackett hired widely respected 40-year coach...
    Twitter users were not fans of Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel’s clock management at the end of the Music City Bowl If you wanted excitement, the 2021 Music City Bowl had you covered. The Tennessee Volunteers trailed the Purdue Boilermakers 38-31 late in the fourth quarter, but managed to tie things up at 45 points apiece. But, the Vols had a chance to potentially kick a walk-off, game-winning field goal. Head coach Josh Heupel had some questionable clock management on the final drive of regulation, which saw him call deep pass plays. Tennessee’s 56-yard field goal attempt flew wide right, sending the game to overtime. Heupel’s strategy had many Twitter users scratching their heads.

    Former Steelers coach and current CBS analyst Bill Cowher couldn’t believe Mike Tomlin’s awful clock management to close out the first half. The Steelers haven’t played well in weeks, but Tomlin isn’t exactly helping their chances. Pittsburgh has a very slim chance at making the playoffs at this juncture, sitting at 6-6-1 and losing to the Tennessee Titans in Week 15. Another defeat could effectively eliminate Pittsburgh. Yet, despite knowing the severity of the situation, Tomlin willingly let critical seconds come off the clock when every point from the Steelers’ poor offense is vital. “Poor clock management for the Steelers at the end of the first half,” Cowher said. Bill Cowher thought Steelers shouldve called TOs near end of Titans final drive that ended in field goal with 21 seconds left so Pgh would have had more time on offense that ended with 56-yard FG try short.

    Can New Yorkers carry guns? A 700 year-old law may inform Supreme Courts Second Amendment decision Baghdad pays Kuwait another $490 mn in war reparations The New York Giants lost 20-17 to the struggling Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, and while poor clock management wasn't the only reason they lost, it was certainly noticeable.  The biggest example of coach Joe Judge's poor clock management came in the second quarter. Judge burned two timeouts in the first five minutes of the second quarter, leaving him with just one for the final 10 minutes of the half. According to NJ.com, both of those timeouts were used due to miscommunications on defensive substitutions — not exactly the most productive way to use them.  Judge blames headset malfunction Judge had an explanation for why he had to use those two timeouts: headset malfunction. No, seriously. That's not a joke he made to lighten the mood, it was his serious explanation. And not just for Monday night's clock management. He blamed the headsets on clock management issues he's had throughout the entire season. ...
    Mike The Situation Sorrentino Celebrates 3rd Anniversary with Wife Lauren: Living a Fairytale The Fastest Shrinking County In Every State The Minnesota Vikings didn't do much with their final drive before the halftime in a 20-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. While quarterback Kirk Cousins ran for a 13-yard gain that gave the Vikings a first down at their own 34-yard line, the team opted against using a timeout and instead tried to line up for another play.  © Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports After inexplicably wasting about 20 seconds, Cousins finally snapped the ball with just five seconds left. After an incomplete pass, Cousins kneeled on the next play to bring the game to halftime. When asked about that clock management debacle after the game, Cousins said it wasn't his fault that the Vikings didn't call timeout. "I just let [Mike Zimmer] handle the timeouts because I never know quite what the coaches want to do with what they're thinking, a play ahead of what it may be," Cousins told reporters, via Chris Long of KSTP.

    Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez bumped into is ex Jennifer Garner With prayers and signs, abortion demonstrators converge on U.S. Supreme Court A lot went wrong for the Vikings' offense in their 20-16  Week 8 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday, but one of their stranger possessions took place at the end of the first half. The Vikings got the ball back from the Cowboys on their own 15-yard line with 37 seconds left in the half and one timeout. The team was able to move the ball to the 34-yard line with their first two plays and looked like they would have a shot to get into field goal range — or at least line up a chance at a Hail Mary. There was just one problem. The Vikings elected not to call a timeout after Kirk Cousins scrambled 13 yards. They let the clock tick down to five seconds before they got their next snap off. After Cousins' short pass to Adam Thielen fell incomplete with one second left in the half, the Vikings then elected to take a knee....
    The Dallas Cowboys awful end to their first half in New England was made even worse by mind boggling time management by Mike McCarthy.  Whatever the opposite of Galaxy Brain is, that’s what Mike McCarthy did at the end of the Cowboys disastrous first half in New England on Sunday. McCarthy botching Dallas’ end of half time management wasn’t totally egregious, but there’s a chance he stood in the way of the Cowboys potentially getting a shot to make up for their horrendous first half of football with some points. Dallas trailed 14-10 at halftime, despite making three trips to the redzone in the first half. Two of those trips ended in turnovers, however, including one that featured Dak Prescott trying to sneak the ball across the goal line but fumbling the ball away in the process. That’s the turnover that set up the Patriots to run out the clock on the first half, expect there was a scenario in which the Cowboys potentially get the ball back. The chance anything of note happened was slim, but let’s put on...
    Who are the best action stars working today? ZIP Code With the Lowest Poverty Rate in Every State © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy created plenty of confusion when failing to use either of his timeouts as the Eagles sputtered with the ball late in the second quarter of Monday night’s game. He did nothing to alleviate the confusion after the game, when he said simply that he was content to take a lead into halftime. Coaches need to say more in those situations. Especially coaches with a history of clock-management issues. Although many would say that, no matter what, McCarthy should have given his team a chance to add to a 20-7 lead, McCarthy could have said something like this: “I believed we were the better team during the first half, and I was confident we’d continue to show it in the second half. I didn’t want to risk giving Philadelphia any reason to think we were letting them hang around. One fluke play, it’s...
    Getty Mike McCarthy, Peyton Manning Like us mortals, Peyton and Eli Manning were parked on their couches for Monday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. And like the rest of us, the Mannings — who host a Monday Night Football simulcast on ESPN2 — were puzzled by McCarthy’s latest incident of clock mismanagement, which occurred near halftime with Dallas leading 20-7. The scenario: Philadelphia had possession just across midfield with 51 seconds remaining, time running. It was 4th-and-5 and the Eagles opted to punt. McCarthy, defying common logic, opted not to force another possession to his offense. The reaction: Peyton: Dallas needs to call timeout! Eli: They probably don’t know if Philly’s going to go for it or not. Peyton: Doesn’t matter. Call timeout, Mike! Eli: He’s thinking about it. Is someone in his ear? Does he have the clock management guy saying,  ‘Hey, we can’t call it here?’ Peyton: Well, last week they couldn’t see the clock with the Chargers, they couldn’t even see the clock. Maybe tonight they can’t see it, either. They are...
    After 5 years, Obamas to break ground on Presidential Center Daniel Craig: 007 over and out Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy wasted a potential scoring opportunity right before halftime against the Eagles on "Monday Night Football" with horrible clock management. Dallas' defense came up with a stop close to midfield with roughly a minute left in the half. McCarthy could have used one of his team's two remaining timeouts to attempt to get the ball back and move it into field goal range to take a 23-7 lead into the locker room. For whatever reason, McCarthy elected not to take a timeout, letting the clock wind down all the way to 20 seconds before Philadelphia took a timeout prior to punting. Because so little time remained in the half, Dallas elected to kneel and head into the locker room with a 20-7 lead.

    Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy had some mind-numbing clock management at the end of the first half of Monday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy has not exactly endeared himself to the fanbase over one season into his tenure with the team. One of the reasons for this is due to his decision-making skills. But for football fans, they simply can not get over McCarthy’s clock management, or lack thereof. After the Eagles failed to convert on a third-and-24 play following a 19-yard catch by running back Miles Sanders, the Cowboys seemingly had an opportunity to receive the ball and to put more points on the board. Instead, McCarthy let the clock dwindle down all the way down to 22-seconds when the Eagles finally let off the punt. Prescott then kneeled the ball down to end the half with the Cowboys leading 20-7.

His 56-yard game-winning field goal also saved face for coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. The Cowboys had one timeout and faced second-and-six from the Chargers 41 with 33 seconds left. Dallas handed the ball off to Tony Pollard, who gained 3 yards. They never got another play off before calling timeout with four seconds left to set up Zuerlein’s try. “Hopefully next time it’s a 48-yarder, and we’ll feel a little bit better about it,” Moore said, via the team website. Moore concedes he should have called a different second-down play. “The clock got a little bit goofy,” Moore said. “I didn’t really like my run to Tony. I would’ve probably called something different there if we had gone down that road again. But those...

    Getty Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy answered for the head-scratching sequence in the waning moments of Sunday’s 20-17 road win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Preceding Greg Zuerlein’s game-winning 56-yard field goal, the Cowboys were set up at the Chargers’ 41, second-and-6, with 33 seconds remaining. Offensive coordinator Kellen Moore then dialed up a Tony Pollard run, and rather than sneak in another play to move Zuerlein a little closer, Dallas burned its final timeout with four ticks left. Roughly 30 seconds were wasted as the entire offense appeared to be in a malaise, unsure of the situation and seemingly indifferent to the ticking clock — a clock that vanquished from SoFi Stadium, according to McCarthy. “The clock I was watching went off the board,” he told reporters after the game, via WFAA’s Mike Leslie. McCarthy explained that Moore “had a clock he was watching, that got blocked by a camera,” per Leslie. “The clock situation — I’ve never had a clock go off the board on me like that,” he added....

The Bearcats were clinging to a 21-19 lead when they got the ball back with 2:54 remaining in the fourth quarter. A long drive could have ended the game, but getting even one first down could have seriously hurt Georgia, which had only two timeouts left. The Bearcats even got that first down on the second play of the drive, seemingly putting them in good position to see out the game. However, Cincinnati suddenly lost all ability to manage time. As outlined by football analyst Warren Sharp, the Bearcats snapped the...

    The Baltimore Ravens need to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers, and plays like that won’t help late in the half.  In what feels like a must-win game for the Baltimore Ravens, Robert Griffin III is playing the best he can. Granted, unlike Kendall Hinton, who had a day to prepare, RG3 has been in John Harbaugh’s system long enough to make it work. And so far, he has. What hasn’t worked is John Harbaugh’s clock management skills. On the final drive of the first half, the Ravens had a chance to score. Thanks to a pair of runs from Justice Hill and Griffin for massive gains, Baltimore marched into the red zone. Near the goal line, the team tried to run it up the gut but was met by a shroud of Steelers defenders. At this point, he should spike the ball, take the chip shot and go into halftime with the points, right? Nope. Not at all. Instead, the clock keeps rolling, it takes forever for the players to get lined up and Griffin tries for the end zone. He...

    The Denver Broncos' and Tennessee Titans' Monday night debut was riddled with mishaps on both sides, but perhaps the most glaring was Vic Fangio’s horrible clock management. Fangio was blasted on social media following Denvers’ 16-14 loss to Tennessee after he failed to stop the clock with his remaining three timeouts and just a one-point lead, giving way for struggling kicker Stephen Gostkowski to make a 25-yard field goal in the closing seconds to win the game. TITANS’ STEPHEN GOSTKOWSKI HITS GAME-WINNING FIELD GOAL AFTER MISSING FOUR KICKS DURING GAME VS. BRONCOS What was stranger than Fangio’s decision not to use a timeout until the final two seconds was his explanation postgame. "It was two-fold. One, their field goal kicker had obviously been having his problems. I didn’t want to extend the drive so they could get closer,” the second-year head coach explained. Gostkowski did have a rough debut, having one attempt sent wide right, another wide left and the third blocked. He also managed to miss an extra point. TITANS’ RASHAAN EVANS EJECTED FROM GAME VS.

    Clock mismanagement may have cost the Broncos a win in their season opener against the Titans, but head coach Vic Fangio claims he had a plan. The Titans’ final drive began with just over three minutes remaining on the clock and consumed two minutes and 48 seconds. Fangio had all three timeouts remaining and could have stopped the clock at any point to leave his team additional time in the likely event the Titans scored. “It was two-fold,” he said to reporters after the game. “One, their field goal kicker obviously been having his problems so I didn’t want to extend the drive where they could get closer.” Kicker Stephen Gostkowksi — once known for his accuracy with the Patriots — had already missed three field goals from 47 yards, 44 yards (blocked) and 42 yards and a PAT by that point. “Number two, we would have used a timeout, but we got the running back out of bounds,” Fangio said of Derrick Henry, who stopped the clock at 0:31 at Denver’s 7-yard line. “We would have used a second...

The entire game came down to a drive by the Titans in the final minutes, and a Stephen Gostkowski field goal with 17 seconds left gave the Titans a 16-14 win. Despite the Broncos’ meager one-point lead hanging in the balance over the final two minutes of the game while the Titans determinedly drove the ball downfield and ran out the clock, coach Vic Fangio didn’t use a single timeout until there were just two seconds left in the game. He still had two timeouts in his pocket when the game ended. That’s just hideous clock management, plain and simple. But after the game, Fangio insisted there were good reasons he didn’t use those timeouts. © Provided by Yahoo! Sports Oct 13, 2019; Denver, CO, USA;...
    The NFL viewing world lost its collective mind in the last couple of minutes of Monday night’s Broncos-Titans game, and it did so with good reason. With Tennessee driving and down one point, Denver coach Vic Fangio let the Titans milk the clock all the way down to 20 seconds without using any of his three timeouts. Kicker Stephen Gostkowski sealed a 16-14 win with a 25-yard field goal. Yet such a short field goal was as far from a sure bet as it gets in pro football, which is part of the reason Fangio defied clock-management logic in the closing minutes. Gostkowski, the ex-New England kicker who signed with Tennessee as a free agent earlier this month to address the team’s issues at the position, was having the worst game of his career. The 15-year NFL veteran had missed three field goals and an extra point.

    Western wildfires: Trump to visit with firefighters 10 Flavorful Marinades that Keep Chicken Dinners Interesting Broncos coach Vic Fangio got roasted for his horrific clock management in loss A key part of being a successful NFL coach is being able to understand clock management and when to use time outs. © Provided by For The Win Broncos coach Vic Fangio showed Monday night that he doesn’t really get either of those things and because of that he wasn’t successful as his team lost at home to the Titans, 16-14, thanks to a field goal in the final minute. But what led to that field goal and all the time that was wasted was incredible. The Titans drove down the field in the final minutes and ran the clock down to 17 seconds before kicking a 25-yard FG for the win. During that time the Broncos had three time outs and Fangio never used any of them. He didn’t even use one to ice Titans kicker Stephen Gostkowsi, who missed three field goals and an extra point in the game....
    Vic Fangio took his two timeouts with him to the postgame press conference Fangio’s clock management has come under question after the Titans eventual drive to take the lead late in Denver left Drew Lock with just under 20 seconds to get to his opponent’s 30-yard line for a realistic chance at a game-winning field goal. Such expectations are unfair, and despite Denver’s lackluster offensive output, this loss falls squarely on the shoulders of their head coach who was ill-prepared to give his team one final chance to win.
    Portland police arrested 27 protesters These restaurant chains are unveiling new designs inspired by the pandemic Middle Tennessee had some of the worst clock management you will ever see vs. Army (video) Middle Tennessee had one of the worst examples of clock management you will ever see.  Already trailing Army 21-0, the Blue Raiders had a first-and-goal from the two-yard line with 45 seconds to go in the first half. With two timeouts remaining, one would figure that was plenty of time to get some points on the board going into halftime.  Somehow it wasn’t.  Inexplicably, Middle Tennessee would get just two plays off without using either of its timeouts and go into the break without scoring any points. On first down, the shotgun snap got past Middle Tennessee quarterback Asher O’Hara. O’Hara scrambled to recover the loose ball, resulting in a 12-yard loss.  The Blue Raiders, without any sense of urgency, got back to the line of scrimmage without huddling, but somehow let more than 30 seconds tick off the clock before the next snap.
